Been to Devon and back - took Grandad - very funny - top holiday quote "you plonker Mark"! (and that was Grandad not me) - I laughed so much, I nearly forgot I was sad.
So given I don't have a Mum anymore (in the physical sense), I went in search of my godmothers - of which I have two. Carol who you know very well and Brenda - not so well. I got a whole heap of Mum hugs, encouragement, understanding and reassurance - at what point does a Mum learn to hug you like nobody else can?
Combine France with Devon, mix in Sophie away in Woolacombe and suddenly I managed 10 days without Sophie and only the odd text. It felt good and I am sure it felt good for her. In fact so good, I was even allowed to hug her (briefly) when I saw her this morning. I hope she liked her "Mum hug".
With loads of hugs and love
